Day 8 - Management agenda......

It's easy, when you run your own business, to lose your way in the maze of day-to-day operations. 
As a maker especially, I tend to focus solely on the task in hand, to the exclusion of all else, when I'm in the creative zone.

So it's important to take regular stock of where you are now, what you're doing and where you're heading.

To this end, we (PP, Small Dog and I) aim to have a weekly management meeting, to sort out where we're at, identify and allocate tasks, and do some strategic planning.

As a boney fido member of the management team, Small Dog is well known for having her paw on the pulse of Tower House Dolls, and she takes a keen interest in attending meetings, especially if there are biscuits.

Having given notice of our intended meeting this morning, I invited items for the agenda.......






Hmmmm..........

That seems fair. I think Small Dog is really onto something ;)

Well thanks, Lucy, my new little dog, Lily, read your demands. Now, she is demanding I quit work and sit on the couch all day with her sleeping on my lap! She wants more treats too. (Lily is a three year old Chijuajua- Italian Greyhound mix who rescued me on November 7. She is rapidly forgetting the bad backyard breeder that made her and her mother and sister live outdoors no matter how bad the weather.)

Happy new year and more biscuits for Lucy!

Jennifer.....

She needs NO encouragement when it comes to employee rights. However, her own iPhone is pushing it.....

Lily is obviously a fast learner. So pleased to hear that she has found a lovely forever home. Have her mother and sister been rescued too? Sx


Neen said...

Sandra, yes, both were adopted. The rescue org told us Lily was shy, quiet and liked to simply stay in sunny spots. That may have been her during the time they rescued her.... She is very active, and has gotten into her head that the entire street is hers. That makes walking interesting since she barks at everyone who dares to show their face. The neighbors are amused to be scolded by Lily, and more than one huge dog has whimpered at being barked at by nine pound Lily.

I do try to censor Small Dog's more outlandish 'bisness' ideas but she's very persistent. It's a terrior thing.

Good to hear that lovely Lily is blossoming. And that her mother and sister have also found loving homes.

Small Dog owns our street too.... she takes her neighbourhood watch duties very seriously :)
